MPEG-2 is indeed BROKEN
VLC will play the MPG2 with NO AUDIO, but technically the file is broken and cannot be converted or loaded into any programs. Consistent reports of "corrupt or broken file."
Too bad, so sad.

This episode scans through a lot of business software from old school mac companies like Cricket, Silicon Beach Software and Macromedia.
The then-new desktop publishing sector gets the most attention, and it's interesting to see how much variety there was in paint- and layout software at the time. Most demoed professional apps are strikingly slow though.
Oh, and there's some hilarious late-80s fashion in there. Random access also features a piece on the upcoming NeXT computer.
